Valentines Day Galore

I made a few cards a few days ago focusing on Valentines but did not have a chance to take pictures of them. I had time today to take photos of the cards.

I'll update the specifics of these cards tomorrow when I have more time to write them.

For the meantime, I'll just add the photos for you to look at.

**UPDATE: I posted the specifics on the cards. Check it out!!

Card #1

Stamps: StampCraft "Fancy Heart"; sentiment: Hero Arts "Life With Sunshine"
Ink: Stampin' Up Pink Passion
Paper: Stampin Up Cool Caribbean and Pink Passion cardstock, Provocraft "Pocket Full of Posies" scrapbook stack
Accessories: Satin Ribbon, Silver Metallic Cord, and JoAnn's Essential Metal Embellishments

Special feature of this card: The Provocraft background paper is textured and it's beautiful in person. The paper was a little pricey but it's worth it. I bought it at JoAnn's and it was on sale. Unfortunately, they ran out from day 1 of the sale which really pissed me off. They didn't bother to re-stock them knowing they were going on sale which is very, very annoying.
